10.30.14: Brian Aitken: Three Years Later - This Week on Gun Talk Radio
Mandeville, LA - It's a detailed book from wrongfully-imprisoned Brian Aitken, a youth hunting program in Texas, a gridlocked senate in Iowa, exclusive guns, and more, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated radio talk show about guns and the shooting sports.
Remember Brian Aitken? In 2010, he was sentenced to seven years in prison for possessing firearms in New Jersey - totally legal, as he was in the process of moving at the time of possession. The police became involved when his mother called 911 and hung up. After a court battle that included a judge improperly instructing the jury, Aitken was convicted. Four months after he reported to prison, Gov. Christie ordered his release. But the story was far from over - Aitken then had to battle for custody of his son. He recently wrote a book about his ordeal, and about the judicial system as a whole. He visits with Tom on Sunday with an update, and details of his book, The Blue Tent Sky: How the Left's War on Guns Cost Me My Son and My Freedom.

The Texas Wildlife Association (TWA) and the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) joined forces to offer youth hunts that are safe, educational and affordable - The result is the Texas Youth Hunting Program. Director Chris Mitchell stops by to discuss the program which, since its inception, has coordinated youth hunts that have involved over 55,000 people. This past weekend, they conducted 15 youth hunts for 115 kids, bringing their total hunts this year so far to 117. Find out more at www.tyhp.org.
Barry Snell with the Iowa Firearms Coalition makes an appearance Sunday to talk with Tom about a situation in Iowa's State Senate. The Chairman of the Iowa Senate Judiciary Committee is Rob Hogg, an openly anti-gun senator who blocks every pro-gun bill that comes through the committee. The IFC is hoping to change the leadership in the upcoming mid-term election. Find out more at http://www.iowacarry.org/.
Also on this week, Kevin Wilson with Gallery of Guns drops by Gun Talk with details of some of the coolest new guns available at http://galleryofguns.com/ - including some of the Davidson's Exclusives, like the Ruger 10-22 rifle in navy digital camo and a Beretta U22 in black and purple.
